A paler ashier tone, the Mushroom Brown has certainly made its rounds as a trending hair color before. But we can’t get enough of it! Perfect on smooth strands, it’s a no-frills color that adds just enough cool tones to your hair. The Mushroom-y gray can blend neatly as a balayage with your natural hair color and can transition anywhere between mauve-like pinks and taupe-toned browns. In the hands of the right hair stylist, it’s absolute perfection.

How to care for brunette colored hair?One of the great things about brunette shades is that it’s fairly simple to maintain. The key is holding on to the color and making sure to refresh it between salon visits. Start off with a sulfate-free shampoo like Kérastase Chroma Absolu Shampoo, P1,750. Its got nourishing ingredients to help hold on to color while caring for your brunette locks. Then make sure to condition hair with a color-safe conditioner like Davines MINU Conditioner: Illuminating Protective Conditioner for Colored Hair, P1,295, that’s designed to moisturize strands and help hold on to pigments so you won’t wash pigments away.
Afraid of fading? After a few weeks you may start to see signs of fading, especially for golden highlights. For this it would be best to get a pigmented mask to add back the lost color. Try Wella Color Fresh Mask, P1,199, in Chocolate Touch or Caramel Glaze. These brown 10-minute home pigmented masks are perfect for reviving hair color so you can keep the look for longer.
